Despite the dusk-to-dawn curfew imposed on Bassa and other two Local Government Areas, suspected herdsmen on Tuesday night killed five persons in Chando-Zrrechi (Tafi-Gana) of Miango District in Bassa Plateau State.

The gunmen reportedly stormed the communities, shooting sporadically.

Confirming the incident to reporters in Jos, Danjuma Auta Dicson, Secretary-General of the Irigwe Development Association said: “Last night 17th August 2021, one of our villages, Chando-Zrrechi (Tafi-Gana) was attacked last night by herdsmen.

” Five people confirmed dead so far at Tafi Gana village of Miango District Irigwe Chiefdom.”

He added the deceased were aside from another son of Irigwe killed at Dong village on August 16, 2021.

The community leader called on security operatives and government to put a stop to the killings.

He warned the people will consider the killings “as ethnic cleansing.”

Calls by The Nation to Plateau Police spokesman ASP. Gabriel Ubah didn’t connect.
